. there you go. >>> welcome to "morning joe." great to have you with us. what a day in norm city yesterday. we actually had breakfast with ahmadinejad. you had lunch with warren buffett. i thought it was a bit in politic for you to ask him to come on "morning joe." tell people, you get warren buffett. you're at lunch and what do you say to him? >> he would be more than willing to carve out a three or four-minute segment once a week to just do stock tips. buffett's picks. >> what are you looking at? he's a hungry kid. >> you had breakfast with ahmadinejad. you had lunch with buffett. >> well, he was at the next table. i didn't have lunch with him. >> i had chicken tenders with my daughter. she's three. >> you're better than us, willie. >> that's like every time i'm going around with mika at speeches and she's giving stories. and then we -- i saw yasir arafat and stalin and churchill. >> is that your mika? >> that's all i got. >> your dad ran u.s. foreign policy. my dad ran a little league team in meridian, mississippi. it's fine. willie is snuggaling up to the chicken tenders. >> it's got to be
and a turbulent president need not be a barrier to an enlightened future. history means that those of us privileged to serve society as elected representatives arrived in this palace of westminster to be immediately reminded of the relationship between church and state. we are conscious of the tension in this relationship as we attempt to do our business. your presence, holy father, adds to the rich tapestry of the past and provides relief to the many people who come here every year to contemplate the character of this building and at what has been witnessed in it. faith is not a relic either in political discourse or in modern society, but is embedded in its fabric. the warm greeting extended to the holy father was a miracle indeed. today in this all, which sits in our democratic tradition, are gathered members of parliament, members of the house of lords, and numerous other distinguished guests from all walks of life and all paths of the united kingdom. on behalf of everyone here, i warmly welcome you and invite you to address us. [applause] >> mr. speaker, thank you for your welcome.
on cell phone use be behind the wheel be on the way? we'll take a look at all that stuff this morning and developing right now, nbc news confirmed that nine u.s. troops are dead after a predawn helicopter crash in afghanistan. jong yang is live in kabul. >> that's right, thomas. the taliban quickly made phone calls to news organizations, including nbc news, here in kabul to claim responsibility. to say that they shot this helicopter down. the military says not so. they say there was no reports of, no reports of any enemy fire before the crash, before the helicopter went down. the taliban often exaggerates its role and claims responsibility for things that actually turn out to be accidents and, actually, most helicopter crashes here in afghanistan have turned out to be accidents. maintenance issues, also the dust that fills the air here just grinding up the helicopters and their rotors. this was in zabul province. a province in southeastern afghanistan. an area where the taliban is in control of a lot of the territory. it's next to kandahar province and a name people are more familiar.
out and shall enjoy covering very much. joining us for this big primary night is chris matthews, host of "hardball." and lawrence o'donnell. the host of the soon to debut last word with lawrence o'donnell. thanks. i really appreciate it. let me ask you this. you think no question the republican party finds a by to fall in love with her and get behind her? >> they have to. i already saw a letter from the senate republican campaign committee. they've already gotten excited about her. they are going to do what they have to do. i think you pointed out rather correctly, you notice the fact that the defeated republican candidate didn't endorse her tonight. so that bit of fence mending has yet to be done and it may not be done. i would have been shocked if she had gotten 40% tonight. up until late today, in fact, well into the evening, the establishment types from delaware were saying, this isn't going to happen. this is a shattering upset. there is no doubt about it. nobody expected it. they were talking 60% for castle late this afternoon. they assumed they had her well in hand. and look wh
'll just keep doing it in the halls. >> okay, great. >> cheers. thanks to you at home for staying with us for the next hour as well. we do have a lot more ahead about don't ask, don't tell, lady gaga, the big day tomorrow, and the wrench that senator john mccain is so lustily throwing into the works on this issue. a report from the scene of today's rally with u.s. air force major mike elmi, and from capitol hill on what could be another filibuster eve. and there are two big reasons why thursday is a day to mark on your electoral calendar. it should favor democrats and howard dean will help us explain. that's all to come. >>> but first, when a political candidate comes from outside mainstream politics and that candidate gets nominated to represent a major party, and part of that candidate's appeal is that they come from outside mainstream politics, there's now a well-established process of making that candidate over, subtly, to make them seem more mainstreamy for the general election. we saw that process in action with the post-primary scrubbing of republican senate candidate, sharron angl
of republican presidential nominee john mccain, will be joining us live here in studio this hour. we arl very, very much looking forward to that on the interview tonight. it is all ahead. >>> but we begin with what is known in american politics as a soft target. >> think about what happens if we don't pass this bill. thinking about what happens to your friends, your neighbors, your contact i ask all of you. what is in the best interest of our country? not what is in the best interest of our party, not what is in the best interest of our own re-election. what is in theรง best interest our country? vote yes. >> that was the top republican in the house john boehner getting emotional, getting choked up while speaking on the house floor. keep that in mind as you watch this. the newly unveiled first campaign ad of the season from the national republican congressional committee is an ad that targets a democratic congressman named joe donnelly from indiana. it appears to be their template ad so you should watch what they're attacking the democrat here for. >> joe donnelly claims he is independent. b
. her previous campaign manager has come out and said she just used the campaign money to pay her own rent which is not legal use of campaign money. i think she will try to just brush that story aside as the typical cross fire that any politician gets into, and try to find her way to the middle on some of these policy questions. >> but in 49 days, how much nondamage can she do to herself when as rachel maddow showed these tapes from mtv, there are tapes in which a candidate for senate for the use, which is what she is now, is discussing openly how people shouldn't masturbate? that would seem to be a difficult sell even in delaware. >> she's going to say it's 14 years ago and she is going to try to not get into repeating those specifics that she got into on that tape. and try to say something that sounds, indicate religiously high minded. that is kind of general. and saying no one should press me on these issues. she may take what she took into a punish you've and now try to play it as a personal issue that should not be questioned. >>> >> 30 seconds, it's a speight impression. does sh
that he is amassing them to use against our friends, against our allies, and against us. >> iraq's weapons of mass destruction are controlled by a murderous tyrant, who has already used chemical weapons to kill thousands of people. >> we know he's been absolutely devoted to trying to acquire nuclear weapons. >> saddam hussein has and is amassing weapons of mass destruction to use against america. that, of course, turned out to be bullpucky as well. leading bush administration war proponent paul wolfowitz conceded later that it was mostly for political convenience that the bush administration decided to go with the whole w.m.d. argument in the early stages of the war. speaking from the white house briefing room on april 10th, 2003, press secretary ari fleischer said this. make to mistake, as i said earlier, we have high confidence that they have weapons of mass destruction. that is what this war was about and is about. no, it isn't. and no, it wasn't. ever. once the war was well under way, even the administration was forced to concede, reluctantly, that there weren't weapons of mass destruc
in your presence. the young turk. that does it for us. "hardball's" up right now. >>> tea party on the delaware. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening,. the little state that could. will delaware be the one to make or break the conservatives chances of taking over the u.s. senate this year? tonight, we get the results of the big tea party challenge of christine o'donnell to possibly win the republican nomination for senate over mike castle. if she does, it will be the eighth time in this political season that a far right of center beat out the favorite for a gop nomination. we'll look at all the big races in seven states tonight and the district of columbia and what's at stake. also, there's a great political battle brewing over taxes. my question. who wins if congress fails to stop this tax hike if nothing gets done, who wins then? who wins if the tax cuts are extended for all of us. and harry reid exchanges tweets with lady gaga. he says he'll try to get a vote this week on ending don't ask, don't tell. could this be about the election? why not just get rid of it period. we'
stated, there is no doubt that iran has weapons of mass destruction and that he is planning on using them against our friends, are allies, and against us. >> they are controlled by a murderous tyrant who has already used chemical weapons to kill thousands of people. >> suddam hussein has and used mass destruction weapons against america. that, of course, has turned out to be bull puck key as well. press secretary said this. make no mistake, as i said earlier, we have high confidence that they have weapons of mass destruction. that is what this war was about and is about. no it isn't and no it wasn't ever. even the bush administration was forced to concede reluctantly that there were not weapons of mass destruction where upon the president decided to make it into a joke. >> no weapons over there. maybe under here. >> that was just as hilarious at the time as it still is today, with more than 4,400 american lives to bolster the belly laughs. ultimately, none of the things our government, at the time, told us were the reasons we had to start a war in iraq were true. opponents of the war said
much in new mexico for us. >>> to one of the stories we're following all this week. one of the critical issues facing the public education today. the growing number of students who quit school even before graduating. a child drops out of school every 11 seconds. that's right. five kids will drop out of school in the united states before we finish reading this guest introduction. a quarter of u.s. students do not graduate from high schools. the class of 2009 dropouts will cost the united states $335 billion in lost wages, taxes and productivit productivity. today on msnbc, two of the most outspoken foot soldiers on education colin powell and his wife talk about the crisis. listen. >> 70% of the youngsters in the cohea coert will not be accepted into the army because they don't have a high school education or even with a high school education, they can't pass our basic, entry-level exam. >> no one entity can take care of all of these needs. it takes all of us saying it takes a village. it takes a village, it takes a community. >> joining us as part of our education nation coverage. execut
, savannah. this was the worst helicopter crash in about four years for u.s. troops. nine troops dead. this happened in zabul province, which is in the south-southeastern section of afghanistan. an area where the taliban controls much of the territory and where coalition forces have been stepping up their attempts to push the taliban out. we are told this crash happened about 4:00 this morning, local time. the military says that there were no reports of enemy fire. that the crash is still under investigation. now, despite the fact that there were no reports of enemy fire, the taliban has called news organizations, including a call here at nbc news in kabul, to claim responsibility for the attack. they say they shot the helicopter down. the taliban often does that, claims responsibility for things that turn out to be accidents. and indeed, most of the helicopter crashes here have turned out to be accidents. maintenance problems, the incredible amount of dust in the air. this is the deadliest year for coalition forces. after today's crash, 525 coalition forces have died this year. 351 o
" for now. thanks for being with us. countdown with keith olbermann starts now. >>> which of these stories will you be talking about tomorrow? going out with a whim per, not a burn. the threat of the burning of the koran equates with afghanistan. the president hits several high notes. >> part of my concern is to make sure we don't start having a whole bunch of folks all across the country think this is the way to get attention. >> blowing the whistle on the gop's perpetual stall on every remedy, on every reform, on every relief. retiring republican ohio senator george voinovich will back obama's small business proposals. we don't have time for messaging, we don't have time anymore. this country is really hurting. >> what i've got is the republicans holding middle class tax relief hostage because they're insisting we've got to give tax relief to millionaires and billionaires. >> don't ask, don't tell, unconstitutional because of a lawsuit filed by republicans. the form of irony, but still a hoot. our guest, lieutenant dan choy. worse, suspected from school because his eyes were bloodshot, o
you so much. that does it for us. >>> let's play "hardball." >>> good evening, leading off tonight, realtime with bill maher. is nothing sacred? bill maher plays "hardball" tonight right up front on the midterms, the tea party, sarah palin and of course, the candidate who has shown two dozen times, the saucer's apprenti apprentice. do you were this moment with president obama? >> quite frankly, i'm exhausted. of defending you, your administration, defending the mantle of change that i voted for and deeply disappointed where we are right now. >> well, the woman talking truth to the president is velma hart. she gins us to talk about how president obama has failed to meet his challenges. >>> and we heard last night from the values voters summit and the attacks on muslim and the claim that president obama wants to impose sharia law. republicans are selling the scare. should some be worried? >>> plus, just say no. late this afternoon, senate republicans voted down an effort to repeal the effort on gays serving openly in the united states military. we'll get into the politics of that sto
. >> the swiss who have been negotiating for her release, but there's no confirmation yet from the u.s. government which, of course, is not represented here. it's frankly a confusing day because there are reports that she was being released. we heard at first, but then there was paperwork to be done. there are reports, richard, that money was paid. >> we have just had a statement from the mother of sarah shourd, she said i hoped and prayed for this moment for 410 days and i cannot wait to wrap sarah in my arms. she goes on to say i can only imagine how bitter sweet her freedom is for her leaving shane and josh behind. she was hiking with josh fattal and shane bauer near the iraq/iran border. they remain in custody. ali arouzi is there right now. do you know what is in store for josh and shane? >> we got a report from the judiciary that their custody will be extended by two months. that may seem ominous, but that's the first time the authorities put a time frame on their jail time. they never said how long they will keep them for. they never formally charged them. today the chief prosec
of the politico. thanks so much. go statesman. that's "hardball." thanks for being with us. right notice time for "the ed show" with ed schultz. >>> good evening, americans and welcome to "the ed show." tonight, live from minneapolis, these stories on the table and hit my hot buttons at this hour. how about this, glenn beck's got a crush on republican governor chris christie, when christie's not bullying teachers he's trying to bully voters. i'll talk to a voter who sparred with christie in just a moment. >>> and speaking of beck, he's the one saying, violence is going to be coming from the left? well, a male sharron angle supporter tea partier reportedly punched a female harry reid supporter during a candidate forum last night. oh, yeah! radio talk show host heidi harris was there, and we'll get that story and get some rapid fire response. >>> and tea partier christine o'donnell, ben quail and demon sheep have one thing in common. details coming up in "the playbook" tonight and the congress's just done something really big in dealing with manipulation occurrencewe china. we'll have that stor
, senator. >> major mike almy joins us live. >>> and the senator standing for reelection by write-in scores a sad own goal against her own campaign. "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. >>> today in the united states senate, language in the defense authorization bill that would let the military "don't ask, don't tell" fell to defeat. senate republicans, in fact, took the historic step of filibustering the entire defense authorization bill in order to maintain the "don't ask, don't tell" policy. they would not even allow debate on the defense bill because it included that language to let the military repeal its own policy on keeping gay people out of the military. and so we don't have a bill to fund the military this year. at least so far. and the "don't ask, don't tell" policy lives. what happens next? well, here is a clue. when i interviewed vice president joe biden less than a week ago, i asked him why if the administration was so opposed to "don't ask, don't tell," why were they still implementing it? why were they still discharging openly gay members of the u.s. military now that
to run against the ideal, if it's a referendum, every one of us will get beats. nobody will get elected. we'd have nobody in office because there's no such thing as the perfect public servant. the choices you make in politics are like the choices you make in life. you look at the facts as best you can and you make the best available choice. >> that's part of a long interview that we did today for an upcoming documentary on the former president. >>> coming up congressman james clyburn said yesterday on "hardball" that if republicans win the house they'll use subpoena power to try to delegitimize president obama. republican congressman darrell issa called us and said that congressman clyburn was being, quote, paranoid. up next i'll ask issa what republicans are actually planning. you're watching "hardball" from dublin only on msnbc. , no. oh. but i did pick up your dry cleaning and had your shoes shined. well, i made you a reservation at the sushi place around the corner. well, in that case, i better get back to these invoices... which i'll do right after making your favorite pancakes. yo
>>> tensions running high in europe right now over fears of a possible tror attack and is the u.s. at risk, too? >>> plus, a super soaker. tropical depression number 16 dwumping on a ton of rain on florida right now and then expected to head right up the east coast. >>> bristol palin's ex meets our own lawrence o'donnell. this one you want to see, believe me. >>> good wednesday morning, i'm chris jansing. live from msnbc world headquarters in new york. well, with the potential republican takeover of congress breathing down his neck, a newly energized and clearly fired up president obama is back on the road and he's got an awful lot at stake. this is the barack obama that fired up an electorate and took the white house. >> the prediction among the pundits is, this is going to be a blood letting for democrats. that's what they're saying in washington. we can't let this country fall backwards because the rest of us didn't care enough to fight. the stakes are too high for our country and for your future and i'm going to get throughout and fight as hard as i can and i know you are, too
it for us. "hardball's" up right now. >>> let's play har hard. good evening. i'm chuck todd in for chris matthews. today may be remembered as the day american politics jumped the shark. when steven colbert came to testify before congress about the plight of migrant farm workers, he did so in character. it's not clear whose reputation took a bigger hit today. >> as we've heard this morning, america's farms are far too depent on immigrant labor to pick our fruits and vegetables. the obvious answer is to stop eating fruits and vegetables and if you look at recent obesity statistics, many have already started. >> it didn't stop at capitol hill. harry reid and sharon engel supporters broke out into a full on brawl at a local christian school. plus, the republican pledge to america. what does it really mean? some say it's designed to get votes and change nothing. some on the left say it's nothing more than a smoke screen to disguise radical ideas. and the comeback kid with another comeback. bill clinton may be the go-to guy president obama needs to save him and his party. ask yourself this. ho
intrigue on the internal anxiety over the afghanistan war. >>> plus -- >> she quit working for us and worked only for herself. what kind of political admaker turns an opponents head into a giant, floating blimp? you will meet the man. good morning, everyone. i'm savannah guthrie. >> i'm chuck todd. by the way, yesterday was the last day of summer, so why not have reports about the last day of summers. we're about 40 plus days to election day. we're going to begin with another palace intrigue story. that's the bob woodward book. the news is already started to leak out thanks to the "new york times" finding the book in it. in it, some of the battles within the obama administration over the war. vick, it looks like woodward is creating characterable moments about things that have leaked out. >> that's a good way to put it. bob woodward has done it again, you guys. appare apparently, a lot of west wing china got broken. you remember those three-hour strategy sessions in the basement of the west wing last fall. apparently now, it was an administration at odds with it. at one point, the
, luke. keep us posted and let us know. >> will do. >> when we get a final tally on the vote. i want to bring in rachel maddox. as you know, a couple of the waivering republicans said you've got to give us a little more room for amendments here. harry reid said no. this is the result. >> well, there's a couple of things. first of all, it's a historic decision to filibuster the defense reauthorization bill. this is something that has passed 48 times in 48 years. it just passes. this is one of the things that just passes. and that's why actually you've seen over the years lots of amendments, lots of things passed that are attached to this. originally when don't ask, don't tell was instituted, it was passed as an amendment to this bill. in 2007, we saw republican senator orrin hatch attach the dream act to this bill. some of john mccain's campaign finance provisions have been attached to this bill. so republican objections that they are very upset about democratic amendments to this are a little strange, given how many amendments republicans have attached to it. also harry reid's office
-- >> stephanie, great to have you with us tonight. >>> tonight our text survey question, i asked you, do you think that the tea party shares your values? 8% said of you said yes. 92% of you said, no. have a great weekend. that's "the ed show." chris matthews and "hardball" is next. see you monday. >>> palin gives iowa a try. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews, down in washington, leading off tonight, the senator from delaware. that's right. the prominence of christine odon thel week, tells you how much the republican party has changed. at least for now. the grand ole party is history. this week's primary voting especially in delaware has changed the calculus. less for this november than for november 2012. if you're a classic lineup, well, if you're a classic lineup the endorsement's big money establishment republican like mitt romney, you've had a very bad week. who had a good week? the candidate who wasn't in today's obama-bashing viewers values summit here in washington, sarah palin. this is her parent now. the only question is what she wants to do herself, run or
the best word to use. these voters have been used, either going republican for years or falling out of interest and helping republicans get elected. now they can all organize, they can all get on facebook, they can contact these candidates pretty easily and get revved up and drive up votes in a way they didn't used to. one twhoing point out. it is not just that they're electing tea party nominees instead of the establishment choices, the republicans are who have are not being defeated by the tea party, john mccain, for example, end up agreeing with them on the issues. the tea party has been really good, better than the democratic base, at moving the party in the direct they want. the more conservative direction. >> at this point we might as well add marko rubio and make it six versus five. do you have a sense, did miss angle give us more information than she wanted to by talking about the rhetoric of the primary versus the rhetoric of the general? any sense of who will try move away from the work stream positions to take softer angle, no pun intended? >> sharron angle has been refre
when such service is extremely perilous. that's "hardball" for now thanks for being with us. right now it is time for "the ed show" with ed schultz. >>> good evening, americans and welcome to "the ed show" tonight, from new york. these stories on the table and hit my hot button that is hour. i'm on fire that conservatives have taken their warped hatred of president obama into public schools in this country. parents are shielding kids from watching the president's back-to-school message. can you believe it? what a low point for this country. my commentary on that. plus, reaction from reverend al sharpton and katrina vanden heuvel of the nation. >>> america's mayor ber narrow is showing democrats basically how to get it done. his opponent was too much of a weenie to debate him in michigan, so he took matters into his own hands and crashed the town hall. we got the story for you. >>> and the professor of paranoia, glenn beck, is warning his viewers with a prediction of liberal violence, led by president obama. i will show you some unbelievable tape of the battleground story tonight. and t
, not a run. i'm not getting on the train to da if there's running. >> there will be no running from us. we got a golf cart. i got, like, those tony soprano sweats, velour and we'll be smoking. we're in new york, we have msnbc and "time" magazine analyst laura halprin. chris jansing and in washington, d.c., nbc political analyst pat buchanan. i don't know if pat is lathered up by what happened last night. pat, we'll get to you in a minute. i was awakened though in the middle of the night by a three-alarm -- not tweet, a three-alarm column by mark halprin, framing last night in opinion pox lip tick terms for the republican party. >> so apocalyptic. republicans were taking a senate seat, there was a building block to get back to the senate majority. it's gone barring some truly unforeseeable development. absolute binary switch. republicans now almost impossible to come up with a way they get the ten-seat majority. in the longer term it shows the republican party has a huge problem. they've benefit friday the tea party movement so far. they'll benefit in november but maybe having a huge, huge
are not anti-wall zreet or business. >> what has made us successful over the long term is we have the most dynamic free market economy in the world. government can't create the majority of jobs. in fact, we want to get out of the way of folks who have a great idea and want to run with it. >> john harwood moderated the town hall, which will reair right here on msnbc. a lot of ground was covered in an hour's worth of time. explain to us the main points the president was trying to drive home. >> well, i think it's the balancing act, thomas, that you identified a few moments ago. he's got to reassure business, which has a lot of cash on their balance sheets that's not being invested that could be a key to growth that they should have confidence in him. they should not see him has somebody attacking him. he has to convince ordinary people he's not too pro business. we had a poll that said most people think he's helping investment banks and large wall street institutions rather than him. it's not easy for him. he kept to his stance on tax cuts. we have a debate on whether the bush tax cuts shoul
